Throughout history Mavens or Accumulators of Knowledge have passed on hard learned life lessons to future generations by creating rich images and using special languages such as Latin to record knowledge in secret and cater to the rich and elite. Much evidence of this practice exists across Islam, Christianity and many others in the form of illustrated manuscripts depicting life during that time period, and the use of iconography and detailed illumination.
